It’s been an epic news year in Pittsburgh. Between the amazing twists and turns of the mayoral race, the spectacular rise of the Pirates and the equally spectacular downfall of the Orie sisters, one might say it’s achieved a Shakespearian level. And who better to follow the plot than the team behind “Off the Record” — the annual, musical satire that takes it’s own twisted view of Pittsburgh news and newsmakers. The show is a presentation of the Pittsburgh Newspaper Guild/CWA which includes Post-Gazette journalists and local SAG-AFTRA actors and performers among those it represents. And it’s all for a good cause as the primary beneficiary of the evening is the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.
This will be the 13th incarnation of the crowd-pleasing show which will take place on Thursday, October 10th at the Byham Theater. But, you’d better get your tickets fast! “Off the Record” always sells out the house.
And this year there’s an extra reason to see the show:
[T]he prebuttalist — getting in his licks before the parody begins — will be Democratic mayoral nominee Bill Peduto.
Did we also mention that the Orie sisters will be depicted as the three witches in “Macbeth” as they deliver their prophecy on all things mayoral? Oh yeah, this one is a must see!
